《Only You只有您》 "Only You" Costume Fitting


Date: November 2, 2009

Temporary Chinese title: 《Only You只有您》
Pinyin title: Only You Ji Yau Nei
Temporary English title: "Only You"
Producer: Amy Wong Sam Wai

Attending Cast: Louise Lee, Yoyo Mung, Kevin Cheng, Chin Ka Lok, Kristal Tin, Vivien Yeo, Evergreen Mak, Vin Choi, Natalie Tong, Suet Nei, Eddie Li, Leanne Li, Lai Lok Yi, Sam Chan, Meini Cheung, Jason Chan, Claire Yiu, Yvonne Ho, Sherman Tang, Helen Ma, Tai Chi Wai, Matthew Ko, Mark Ma, Jones Lee, Deno Cheung, Otto Chan, Tony Yee, Zoey Sham, Stephen Wong, Johnson Lee, Leung Kin Ping, Lau Dan, Rosanne Lui, Wong Chun Tong, Charmaine Li, and Lau Kwai Fong.

Time: 12:30
Place: Tseung Kwan O TVB City Studio One


- 30 episodes long.
- The series will revolve around wedding planning.
- Louise Lee will play a marriage consultant.
- Yoyo Mung will play a bad-mouthed, straightforward wedding planner. She loves money because she needs to support her family.
- Kevin Cheng will play an artistic photographer. He and Yoyo will play an arguing couple.
- Chin Ka Lok and Ella Koon will play a pair.

Personal Note: I'm so happy that Yoyo's name is second, and I do not believe that Yoyo replaced Ada's role because Yoyo was already confirmed when she was in Taiwan promoting "Forensic Heroes". :) Also, they probably wanted double siu sang and double fa dan (Roger, Kevin Cheng, Ada, and Yoyo) in the series; however, one by one turned the series down. Paul Chun also turned it down.

Also, I don't know why people are saying that Ron is in this. Why would Ron be in here? The only Amy Wong series he was in was "Burning Flame II".

"Born Rich" Sub Song (HQ Version)


"Two Rounds of Life" - Kay Tse

兩生關 《富貴門》 插曲 - 謝安琪

作曲: 周博賢/Cousin Fung
填詞: 周博賢

命運根本喜愛弄人 賤貴沒遺漏 最痛愛的一切鮮有永久
莫逆之交恩怨情仇 大多到白頭 人越是不想去放手偏要放手

*有難時我是朋友 割蓆時與我分左右
轉過頭 分開走 大事蹂躪然後要我將攤子收
從前雙生怎會到日後 淪落變雙黑的對手
就為了酒色私利慾和求 回贈我開封的匕首
愛得深厚 卻不足夠 我認識你確未透

Repeat *


雙生怎會到日後 淪落變雙黑的對手
就為了一己私利便幪頭 忘掉我當天跟你走
我不足夠 愛得不夠 怠慢將你挽救
難道天公要我目睹你別忘後 遺憾至死分憂

"Beyond the Realm of Conscience" Theme Song (HQ Version)


"Scheming Heart" - Susanna Kwan

誓約 歷遍世間轉化
善惡 未報最終需要代價

平步震驚天下 綢緞如鏡 玉砌似畫
眉目如雪 未染細沙 請你留下

*若抱住 別作夢 未得寵
看到的 聽到的 不要信
遺憾是 閉起眼時 至望到世間多少暗湧

愛得深 說得真 別感動
再錐心 再刻骨 不覺痛
無奈是 兩手相擁 也是覺得冰凍 (曾極恨 也可相擁 往事如塵像風)*

誓約 在美境中火化
直到 玉砌最終都變敗瓦

回望那天初夏 良善如昨 貌美似花
人事常變 淚會結疤 景致如畫

Repeat (*)

Moses Chan @ 李怡


Moses is super cute! I always look forward to the cartoons that MC Hall creates for Moses' characters! So awesome!

It is super funny because I was just saying to my sister the other day about how I was checking out MC Hall to see if they had Moses' cartoon for "Beyond the Realm of Conscience". Later, mare from All About Mo told me that they had it up! I was super psyched to see his cute expression holding the fans! He he.... :D

Also, the first week of "Beyond the Realm of Conscience" averaged 33 points! Great start! Keep it up! :)

Apart from the good news regarding the first week of ratings, I'm also happy that Moses' character is receiving praises. Oh, and I hate Tracy Ip for killing his turtle! :(

Kenneth Ma: Performing Guest @ Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant 2009

Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant 2009


The Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant web page description on Kenneth is information from Wikipedia, except for the part below.

Personality with Many "Looks"...

1). 怕醜, 較為自我中心
Shy and a bit self-centred
2). 容易緊張..好易出汗
Gets nervous easily..easy to sweat
3). 為人較為理性..唔夠感性
Very rational..not emotional enough
4). 節儉
5). 友善, 隨和, 勤力
Friendly, amiable, and hardworking
6). 孝順, 顧家的男人
Filial and looks after his family
7). 口頭禪: "無所謂"
Favourite saying: "It doesn't matter".
8). 不相熟的人, 就會很少說話, 相反, 熟悉的朋友就會很多說話
He will not have much to say to people he is not familiar with; on the contrary, he will speak a lot to people he is very acquainted with.

FYI: The first picture is his artiste profile picture from 2006, and the second picture is his artiste profile picture from 2008. :) I really like Ma Ming's nerdy look. He he.... :D

Kenneth Ma: Anticipation with the Audience


From the pure and kindhearted Mai Fung Nin in "The Master of Tai Chi" to the straightforward and righteous Iron Fist in "The Four", and from the sweet talker Leung Kai Yin in "Speech of Silence" to the supercilious and self-willed Sing Ka Chun in "D.I.E.", these are characters of Kenneth Ma's that he had left a memorable image in the audiences' heart. In November, Kenneth Ma will be coming to Canada to perform at this year's Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant. This will allow the audience to anticipate his arrival.

Thankful for Career and Family

Kenneth Ma is more and more accepted by the audience, and he is filming series after series. This includes modern and ancient, and he is currently wrapping up "Shall We State the Case". He is busy to the point that it is difficult to interview him. After much planning with his manager, we were finally able to contact Kenneth a couple days before Thanksgiving. The reporter first asked him if he remembers Canada's Thanksgiving Day. He laughed, "I lived in Vancouver for many years. How can I forget such a big holiday? At this moment, I should also say some things that I am thankful for. For my career to have such good results, I feel very thankful. Also, I have a great family: my parents who love and support me, and two sisters who care for me. It is very fortunate to have a loving family, so I am very thankful". Others around Kenneth can feel the joy in his expression.

Upon mentioning Vancouver, Kenneth admitted that he really liked the place: "The calm, comforting, and leisurely lifestyle is very different compared to fast-paced Hong Kong. After a tiring day of work, I will occasionally think of the days in Vancouver. Even if it is the fearful shovelling of snow or cutting of grass, it is a type of enjoyment. After I finish the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant, and if time permits, I would really want to go to Vancouver to visit my old friends".

Most Respected Instructor Law Koon Lan

Before the emigration tide in 1997, Mother Ma along with her three children immigrated to Vancouver. Therefore, Kenneth has a deep affection toward the people and matter in Vancouver. "In UBC, I majored in the one that everyone sees as the boring mechanical engineering. To be honest, there is no slacking off in this major. And for me to make it to graduation, it is not a simple matter!" After completing university, Kenneth returned to Hong Kong, hoping to open up a new world, but he had never thought that he would encounter the financial crisis. It was because of this financial crisis that made it very difficult for Kenneth to find a job. "I had mailed out 60 or 70 application letters, but had no reply. The only one I got a reply was from TVB's Acting Class". In Kenneth's point of view, TVB's Acting Class was better than applying for unemployment insurance. He accepted the job at a monthly salary of $4,000.

In TVB's Acting Class, Kenneth admitted that he had benefited much from it, and it had widened his horizon. "The instructors are very strict on us students. If the slightest mistake is made, the instructor will disregard their feelings and correct them in the big crowd of people. But as the saying goes, 'Bright Teacher Comes Outstanding Pupil'. As I think about it, I really have to thank every instructor for their guidance. From their precious experience, I have learned a lot of knowledge on performance". This filial student's most respected instructor is veteran Law Koon Lan.

"Iron Horse Seeking Bridge" Breakthrough Performance

"After entering the TV industry, I deeply realized that working in this business, you mustn't mind trivial matters. Especially at the time when I was a newbie, I had to obey the PAs' (production assistant) orders. Back then, whatever they had me do, I'd do it. I would wait quietly and would not talk back. Slowly, opportunity came!"

Entering the business for ten years, Kenneth is an artiste with many series. He has filmed numerous modern and ancient series. Out of the two, what type of character does he like the most? "It doesn't matter what type of character I play. The fun part about filming is that each character you play will be different. As long as the script is well-written, and I can utilize my acting skills, then I will like it. I believe the performance space in filming ancient series is bigger. You can be pulled out of reality, such as flying on wires. When filming modern series, you must follow reality, and you cannot exaggerate too much. Out of all my TV series at this point, my most favourite is the not-yet-aired 'Iron Horse Seeking Bridge'. In the series, I play a martial arts master with extraordinary skills, and a smart boy, too. But the character also has asthma, so when he has an asthma attack, he will not be able to use any of his martial arts. I believe that I have a breakthrough performance in here because I have jumped out of the stable box".

In order to film a lion dance scene, Kenneth practiced with the professional stuntman. With the hot temperatures of summer, holding the lion head and moving it under the hot sun, his sweat was like rain drops. You could tell it was labourious work.

Performing Profession Can Be Very Long

"If there is a chance for you to do it, I shouldn't say it is labourious. Like I said in the beginning, for me to have the opportunity to develop in this industry, I am very thankful. I am more and more interested in this industry. As for awards, it is feeling at ease whatever the circumstance is. To be recognized [for my work] is a happy thing. But if I lose to my competitor, then that proves I still need to work harder. Someone once asked me how long I plan on acting? I can only say that there is no specific timetable, and I don't mind if I work until I am old. I see many veterans around me, they are all great actors with high degrees of proficient acting skills, and they are loved by the audience. As long as I am happy, as long as the audience is still watching, and as long as the company will give me opportunities to continue to perform, then my performance profession can be very long". Other than filming series, Kenneth also performs on stage in other cities and countries. He frankly said, "These are the real money-making opportunities!" It seems that Kenneth wasn't able to become a mechanical engineer, but made a career change into acting. Not only is this the correct choice, but it is a long-term investment with an amount of interest!

Inner and Outer Beauty as Standard

As for being invited to be a performing guest at this year's Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant, Kenneth is full of anticipation. "It has been at least ten years since I was last in Toronto! When I was going to school in Vancouver, I had once gone to Niagara Falls with my mom and friends. I heard that, for many years, Toronto's food has had a very high standard. I hope to have the opportunity to eat some delicious food".

When mentioning the grand occasion of the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant, Kenneth suddenly had more topics to talk about. "Canada is full of beautiful girls. In recent years, contestants from Canada have had great results at Miss Chinese International Pageants, such as Bernice Liu, Linda Chung, Aimee Chan, Christine Kuo, Christy Chung, etc. They are all publicly acknowledged as beautiful girls. They have grace, and they have confidence. [To be able to perform at this year's Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant], it is such a rare opportunity to be in close contact with the contestants". In Kenneth's eyes, what is his definition of a beautiful girl? He said, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Different people have different views. It would not be fair if beauty is only judged from their outer appearance. I think beauty is the most eye-catching when radiance shines through from the inside to the outside. Also, a girl with a calm, refined, and natural performance who speaks orderly, and has wisdom will eventually be charming".

As for singing, Kenneth modestly said that he is not a singer, so he is not comparable to a professional singer. "But, I like to listen to songs, and I have learned under an instructor before. So I have learned some skills in singing. As for this performance at the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant, I hope the audience will support me". Actually, his theme songs for "Man in Charge" and "Survivor's Law II" have already been known to the audience. On the night of the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant, the audience will be able to see this popular artiste's demeanour and admire his singing. Kenneth, Canada's TV fans are anticipating your arrival!

Personal Note: Ha ha.... Toronto loves Ma Ming! They are really anticipating his arrival! :D I don't remember any other TVB artiste having a magazine article when they went to perform at either the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant or the Miss Chinese Vancouver Pageant.

Anyway, Ma Ming likes his performance in "Iron Horse Seeking Bridge". Wow! I know I was looking forward to it because he seemed to be main compared to Kevin Cheng, but for him to say that it is his most favourite to date, that is just awesome! Also, he's paired up with Selena. Another bonus! :D Ha ha....

News on TV Awards Presentation 2009

Nomination list will be revealed on November 5, 2009.
To encourage the nominees, they will also receive a certificate on this day.

This year's TV Awards Presentation will take place on December 4th to allow both anniversary series, "Beyond the Realm of Conscience" and "Born Rich", to have fair play in nominations.

New Rule: The 'Best Actor', 'Best Actress', 'Best Supporting Actor', and 'Best Supporting Actress' categories will each have 15 nominations.

Last year, each category had 10 nominations.

New Award: 'Best Performance of the Year'
The award will be given to the artiste or host with the best performance in the past year.

Last year's new awards included 'Most Popular TVB Blog' and 'Best Fashion'.

hyn5: Based on the this year's performance, the award should be awarded to either Wayne Lai or Michael Tse. Wayne performed and hosted at many major TVB events this year. He can be seen in "Off Pedder" every day. His performance in "Rosy Business" was extraordinary, and Chai Gau Gor's quotes were very memorable. Michael's performance as Laughing in "E.U." was so big that TVB and Shaw Brothers made Laughing's prequel with the movie "Turning Point". The movie grossed a total of 16,000,000, and it was this summer's number one Chinese movie at the box office.

However, based on TVB's past history, the special award is usually given to TVB's managed artistes. I would not be surprised if the award is given to Raymond Lam or Charmaine Sheh. Even though Raymond did not have any series aired this year, the award is called 'Best Performance of the Year', so Raymond's concert performance should be enough. As 'TVB's number one sister', 'TV Queen', and with three series aired this year, Charmaine is qualified to take this award from the other competitors. If Charmaine loses out on 'Best Actress' and 'My Favourite TV Female Character', she will most definitely win the special award.


Some of the nominees for 'Best Actor'

Wayne Lai "Rosy Business"
Moses Chan "The Gem of Life"
Dayo Wong "You're Hired"
Kevin Cheng "Burning Flame III"
Bosco Wong "Burning Flame III"
Wong He "Burning Flame III"
Roger Kwok "D.I.E. Again"
Gallen Lo "Born Rich"
Ray Lui "Born Rich"

Guessing that the remaining nominees will be filled with:
Damian Lau "In the Chamber of Bliss"
Michael Miu "E.U."
Ron Ng "E.U."
Bowie Lam "The Gem of Life"
Steven Ma "Sweetness of the Salt"
Joe Ma "When the Easterly Showers Fall on the Sunny West"
Kenneth Ma "Man in Charge"

Some of the nominees for 'Best Actress'

Sheren Tang "Rosy Business"
Charmaine Sheh "Beyond the Realm of Conscience"
Tavia Yeung "Beyond the Realm of Conscience"
Kenix Kwok "Born Rich"
Jaime Chik "Born Rich"
Anita Yuen "Born Rich"
Teresa Mo "Off Pedder"
Sonija Kwok "D.I.E. Again"
Liza Wang "When the Easterly Showers Fall on the Sunny West"

Guessing that the remaining nominees will be filled with:
Louise Lee "The Stew of Life"
Kathy Chow "In the Chamber of Bliss"
Ada Choi "The Gem of Life"
Jessica Hsuan "Just Love II"
Kate Tsui "Man in Charge"
Myolie Wu "Burning Flame III"

A Blast from the Past: Johnson Lee Imitates Heavenly Four Kings

Johnson Lee imitates Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, and Leon Lai @ 1998年度叱吒樂壇流行榜頒獎典禮.

You'll be surprised at how many people not knowing this was from 1998's 叱吒 music awards (presented in January 1999).

Johnson was invited as a guest because of his voice imitation talents. Johnson later became a singer in 2000.


Andy Lau 《笨小孩》
Aaron Kwok 《驚變》
Aaron Kwok 《一變傾城》
Leon Lai 《我這樣愛你》
Aaron Kwok 《唱這歌》

Personal Note: Johnson was so young! He was turning 25 that year. I remember watching his MV for "Cyber Love 2000". It was very cheesy! Ha ha.... :)

Anyway, out of all the people who imitate the 'Four Heavenly Kings', I think Johnson's imitation of Leon's vocals is the closest. Leon's voice is very difficult to imitate because no one has his singing voice. Not even Fung Man Lok from "Minutes to Fame" can imitate Leon's voice. :)

English Compilation

"Singalongsong" - Khalil Fong

"Vie Ya" - Fiona Sit

"Love Has It All" - Ivana Wong

"Fiona's Café" - Soler

"Cries in a Distance" - JJ Lin

"Man in the Mirror" - Wang Lee Hom

"Nothing Ever Happened" - Eason Chan

"My Eyes Don't Lie" - Janice M. Vidal

"Here I Go" - Eric Suen

Personal Note: I've been listening to these songs lately. 好好聽!

More pictures from kennethma.org

Gallen Lo - The Return of Lee Kei! :)

Personal Note: I know these pictures are from Ma Ming's place, but I can't help but look at Gallen. I think these pictures captured some cute Gallen gestures! It reminds me of past TVB events where he'd performed at. He he.... :)

TVB 42nd Anniversary Light Switching Ceremony

TVB 42年 繼續創造 繼續 Good Show!

Part 1

Part 2


Personal Note: Nothing special about this year's light switching ceremony...TVB just pushing the two anniversary series. :) It would have been nice to see a big star perform this year. I usually look forward to the part where the singer sings old TVB theme songs, but the final 13 contestants from "The Voice" didn't have that 味道.

Derek Li referred to Michael Miu as 'Tin Gor' and not 'Hau Gor'. :P

Moses was speaking very carefully. It seemed as though his fake mustache was going to fall off. :)
